Orange has partnered with ThousandEyes, an Internet and cloud intelligence company, to deliver real-time, end-to-end visibility on both its enterprise networks and the Open Transit Internet (OTI).

Together the ThousandEyes platform combined with Orange’s expertise in data analytics gives users improved digital experience delivered across the Internet to cloud service providers (CSPs), internet service providers (ISPs) and content providers (CPs).

Orange Business Services says it will power this partnership to provide its customers with leading-edge enterprise-grade managed Internet, multi-cloud connectivity and SD-WAN visibility services.

"With ThousandEyes intelligence and the Orange flexible SD-WAN solution, businesses can see, understand and manage digital experience over the public Internet like it's their own private network and embrace Internet and Cloud with confidence,” said Craig Vario, vice president of global channel sales at ThousandEyes.

In addition, due to the ability of the ThousandEyes platform to optimise the migration process, it supports the goal of Orange Business Services to follow its customers globally in its cloud and SD-WAN transformation journeys. The platform allows Orange to monitor quality of experience at both the application and network level, as well as speed up troubleshooting in case of Internet-related performance issues. As a result, customers will be able to gain insight into the internal and external dependencies that impact the end-user experience.

“As multi-cloud and software defined networking become key deployment models for applications and services, understanding the Internet as a delivery path is crucial,” added Anne-Marie Thiollet, vice president of connectivity, Orange Business Services. “With the ThousandEyes platform, Orange Business Services will give its customers the visibility they need to deliver a superior digital experience to users via both the Internet and multi-cloud. We strongly believe that the ThousandEyes platform will be a critical enabler of our flexible SD-WAN value proposition to our global clients.”

Orange has already rolled out the ThousandEyes platform to a number of customers including a German industrial manufacturer, who used it to determine the best cloud connectivity solution in China.
